Top Five Manchester United Moments in 2016/17 (Part 1)

Every club has its moments - good and bad, in a football season. Manchester United are not an exception to the rule and while the Premier League campaign was largely uninteresting and uninspiring, there have been some interesting narratives and flash points that have featured across the 62-game slug-fest as Mourinho saw off his first campaign with two trophies (he could argue 3) and Champions League qualification. I would like to share my top five in two parts - this …

If the Reds beat Middlesbrough at Anfield, they will finish in the top four and return to the Champions League next season. …
Daniel Sturridge - The Nearly Man at the Nearly Club

Daniel Sturridge - The Nearly Man at the Nearly Club

There was once a player named Daniel Sturridge. Three years ago, he was one half of an SAS strike force with Luis Suarez at Liverpool FC. The British Special Forces reference, coined by the British media during the 2013-14 season, was well earned. Suarez and Sturridge terrorized countless defenses, successfully bombarding opposition goalmouths time and again that season. The team scored more than a 100 goals in the league, and he ended a bitter sweet season as a runner up, …

West Ham Vs Liverpool Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Only a couple of game weeks of Premier League football are left this season and the air is thick with talks of x number of knock-out games. Most of the teams that are playing for something more than pride and points now – be it relegation or European qualification, have to treat their remaining league matches as “finals” to achieve their targets. Arsenal and Liverpool need to win their remaining games to ensure the other does get the fourth spot. …

Familiar Scoreline sees Man United through to an Unfamiliar Fixture

Manchester United drew 1-1 at Old Trafford for the 12th time in 2016/17 - although only on this occasion, the scoreline was actually enough for the Red Devils to reach the seventh European final in their history. In isolation, it was another poor display from Mourinho's men at home where their inability to win football matches has been well documented this campaign. Utterly dominated by the 12th placed side in La Liga both in terms of possession and clear-cut chances …

Arsenal v Manchester United Preview: Team News, Stats & Key Men

For the first time in forty years, Manchester United and Arsenal will play in the second half of the season outside of top four. Not only does it show how far the two giants of English football have fallen, but also represents a genuine risk of what could easily be the norm for the next few seasons. Arsenal were humiliated at White Hart Lane on Sunday after a convincing defeat in the last ever North London Derby in the hallowed …

Fellaini, Romero and the Romance of the Europa League

Fellaini, Romero and the Romance of the Europa League

Manchester United are through to the last eight of another European competition. The Red Devils, despite all the 'obstacles' came away with a 1-0 victory which will be remembered for a long time for reasons plenty, with the result itself not being one of them. United went into the game with a bit of suspicion in their minds planted by a rather dangerously slender advantage via the away goal they had scored in Russia. Mourinho started the game with a …
